Dear Jane Siggie Quilt Update

Chain Pieced 9 PatchI have to say that I’m loving working on this quilt.  Over the weekend I started cutting the strips for around the siggie blocks and started putting those together, after I cut them all down to 5″.  I’m doing a lot of chain piecing on this quilt because it makes it so much faster!  On the siggie blocks I put the top piece on (1.25″ x 5″) all of the blocks.  Then after pressing I added the next side (1.25″ x 5.75″) – log cabin style.  I have the 3rd side cut out already and I’m planning on adding that this afternoon while Alex naps.  I hope to cut out the 6.5″ side and get that added on this afternoon too, it’ll depend on how long he naps.  Then I’ll need to cut out some more 2.5″ black squares with my Go to finish the alternate blocks.  Boy are those easy to chain piece too!  I saw on Bonnie Hunter’s site once how she will sew together the first 2 blocks in each row, leave them connected together then add the next piece on.  Then everything for 1 block is together.  I was flying through those blocks this weekend!  I have 15 done and 34 to go as soon as I get the black cut out.  I really want this done before Thursdays meeting.  If I get enough done I’ll be back later, if not tomorrow!
